Bundoran is a fantastic base for a hill walking expedition either locally or as a starting point for experiencing the amazing wilds of Ireland's north west. The staff at TurfnSurf Lodge regularly get their hiking boots out; be it for a "wee" ramble through a valley or for a more strenuous tramp up a mountain. Some of these walks are easy to find but others you may have to be a little handy with an Ordnance Survey map. Either way if you fancy breathing in the vastness of the north west then ask any of the staff and they will be happy to point you in the right direction.
To give you an idea of what is on offer in Ireland's north west in terms of hill walking we have very briefly summarised some of the more popular walks below. Always remember that in most cases you are walking over somebody's land. So don't forget to always ask permission from the Land Owner before beginning.
Also, within an hour and a half by car to the north, an adventurous hiker can experience the solitary majesty of the perfect cone-shaped Mount Errigal, the rustic sloping mountain of Muckish and the eerie stillness of the Poisoned Glen; all of which are located within beautiful Glenveagh National Park.
The Blue Stack range (situated only about 40 minutes drive away) holds what is possibly the most isolated part of Ireland and includes the Barnesmore Gap which is both a physical and psychological gap in county Donegal.
